About the HiSET Language Arts - Writing
The HiSET exam is offered by a few states in place of the GED high school equivalency exam. It has five subtests, including the language arts - writing subtest. This subtest is designed to gauge students' essay writing capabilities. Students will need to be able to organize ideas, develop material and write effectively. They should also be able to make revisions for grammar, punctuation and general writing mechanics. Eligibility to take the HiSET varies by state, but eligible students can take the exam at any test center within a participating state whenever the test center is open. Each state that offers the HiSET determines the format of test, which is available in paper-based or computer-based formats.
HiSET Language Arts - Writing Registration and Preparation
Registration for the HiSET is available by phone or online, but each participating state decides which process you can use. Take the HiSET Language Arts - Writing test on its own or take the entire battery of subtests at one time. The fee for the exam is due when you schedule your exam.
To prepare for the writing subtest, watch all the video lessons and track your progress through this course. Each lesson is followed by a short self-assessment quiz you can use to make sure you understand the basic writing concepts needed to pass the HiSET writing subtest. The videos include practice lessons to help you get better at writing, and the final exam can familiarize you with the structure of the multiple-choice portion of the writing subtest.
